Everbright Securities Significantly Increases Data Processing Speed With Informatica Real Time Data Integration

Major Chinese Securities Brokerage Leverages Informatica Platform To Better Manage Risk And Sharpen Competitive Edge

BEIJING, China, October 13, 2009 -  Informatica Corporation (NASDAQ: INFA), the world’s number one independent provider of data integration software, today announced that
Everbright Securities Co., Ltd., China's 11th-largest brokerage by assets, is successfully leveraging the Informatica Platform for data migration and real-time data collection and integration enterprise wide. In slashing the time required for data collection and migration by two-thirds, the Informatica platform has enabled Everbright Securities to accelerate the launch of new products and services, improve its risk management and move more quickly in exploiting new business opportunities. 

“Timely, accurate data is vital to the business development and daily operations of Everbright Securities,” said Li Xianzhi, general manager of IT, Everbright Securities. “Through the Informatica Platform, we have constructed an open, real-time data integration environment that enables us to obtain various key integrated business data in a much shorter timeframe – within just 10 seconds – and keep better informed about various transactions. In addition to reducing our exposure to risk, the platform has also significantly reduced our time-to-market for new products and services, thus helping to sharpen our competitive edge.”

In its day-to-day operations, Everbright Securities accesses huge amounts of business data for cross-checking and identifying potential opportunities and risks. Previously, the company relied on costly manual-coding techniques to collect and process this data across a wide variety of dissimilar business systems and data types.  As such techniques are time-consuming and error-prone, Everbright was challenged to obtain the accurate, timely information it needed to make timely business decisions and take appropriate risk control measures. Consequently, the company moved to implement a new data platform to meet its increasingly urgent information requirements.

With the Informatica Platform, Everbright Securities now leverages a real-time data collection and integration solution that combines two key platform components: Informatica PowerCenter Real-Time Edition and Informatica PowerExchange software. The Informatica solution enables the securities broker to access, transform, consolidate and analyze enterprise data sourced from numerous disparate systems and databases, thus sharing information across multiple departments and more than 1,000 Everbright Securities users on a real-time basis. In place of laborious and costly manual coding, the Informatica Platform provides codeless, point-and-click development combined with extensive reuse of data transformations and mappings, which makes it easy for Everbright Securities to add new data sources, react to business change and cost-effectively manage its data integration infrastructure.

“Like many enterprises, Everbright Securities faced the problem of ‘information islands’ standing in the way of unified, timely and trusted business views – a problem that only worsens as an enterprise’s operations grow,” said James Markarian, general manager, Data Integration, Informatica. “By implementing Informatica’s real-time Data Integration Platform, Everbright Securities is able to explore, access and integrate data from almost any system at varying speed for a comprehensive and accurate view of risk and opportunities. The result means that Everbright Securities has improved its business agility and competitiveness.”
